Well, all you old-fashioned people who pay for TV channels, it’s your turn to laugh at us post-cable kids! Animal Planet has ordered 12 episodes of Sweet Avenger a “docusoap” (as The Hollywood Reporter puts it) featuring the fabulous wizard behind Vegan Treats, Danielle Konya.
There’s a pretty nice quote in the afore-linked Reporter piece:
“Animal Planet made a big brand statement with Whale Wars,” said Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. “Now with Sweet Avenger, muscular conservation has a deliciously different new face.”
Right on! Veganism on mainstream TV is too often represented by bland apologetic almost-vegans, crazy people, or boring people. Danielle is none of these. Congrats to Danielle and to Animal Planet. I hope the show is great and is a success.
Also I wish Vegan Treats would open a storefront in NYC already.
